    Default I need to teach my wife to keep filming even when things don't feel like they are going too well.

    Here is a video from the last ride we had. I guess she bumped the off button on the camera or something. This could have been a funnier video.

    lol I can't even get my wife to come out on the trail with me. I took her on a small trail with a little hill climb and she freaked out when we hit a hidden rock and went just a "little" off camber! I would love to have her with me to video. sigh. lol

    Good luck, most of our video's end with shots of the ground or the dash and a lot of oh no oh no oh no. I am thinking about mounting the camera to the roll bar across the top of the wind shield. Haven't found a mount I like so I may have to make some thing so it sits next to the rear view mirror or maybe under it so it doesn't block the visors. Any one see something like this. Pictures!

    I'm also one that can't get my wife to come out with me. She came out once and hasn't been again since she hit her head on the windshield, but I keep trying.

    Our whole family goes wheeling and we try to hit any jeep gathering / event together. It is one of those "family" things we do, which makes it a lot easier to get replacement stuff versus coming home and saying "hey momma, i broke this and i need to get this". I basically have the whole ride home to talk about why I need to get something and by the time we get home she is convinced.

    my wife freaks out, too. but if she's in someone else's truck it's OK. So what usually ends up happening is that I get my mother-in-law (who at 67 is crazier than any two soldiers I've met) while I drive down the rio grande or slide sideways off a sand dune...while my wife rides with whoever else is along. I should get her a video camera. I'll never forget seeing my mother-in-law eat a fist sized piece of river goop when she stuck her head over the half door! She loved it even more than I did.
    Keep it slow. I can't afford spare parts.

    You are freakin smart! Right now I going to route of stay single and answer to no one. When that changes I will remember these words of wisdom.
